Knowledgeline

Knowledgeline Thursday, October 14, 2004 Blawgs v. Traditional E-Newsletters I recently looked at a product designed for lawyers to start their own blogs, [link] and initially thought it might be a hard sell to larger law firms and that the tool was really more geared towards smaller firms and solo practitioners. But, after looking at how some law firms sends out its newsletters, this quickly became a no brainer (at least to me).

Knowledgeline Thursday, December 02, 2004 More on knowledge repositories In an earlier post , I talked about a webinar detailing the pros and cons of various storage/retrieval methods for knowledge.

At the end of the day, we have a hard enough time getting lawyers to contribute/use any form of KM system, so why make it any harder than necessary?

Knowledgeline Wednesday, December 01, 2004 Hummingbird loses three clients while others progress to rollout While on the topic of DMS, I found this article in the UK magazine, LegalIT, very interesting. That along with numerous posts on various listserves, leads me to believe that Hummingbird is losing marketshare. While probably not all that surprising to most, this article is one of the first where firms openly talk about their problems with Hummingbird.

I recently got a demo of iManage v8, which purports to address this issue by taking advantage of the Verity search engine which they use. Unfortunately, it still doesnt do the basic things like search result ranking that many need.

The answer to this is AARs.
